Nice place for breakfast.

Note: NO WIFI is offered. This was very close to the Riverside Hotel. Less than a 100 yards away. French influenced restaurants. Very good breakfasts and the croissants were delicious.

Had a tasty panini "Barcelone", which was very nice and welcome after all the Asian food. The restaurant has a Frech touch. I also got some croissants the next day, not as perfect like in Europe, but close.

Came here on the back of Lonely Planet. It's hardly THE BEST bakery? The croissant and baguette is nothing different to what you'd get in a supermarket and hardly wow bakery standard. Maybe if you're missing bread then it's wow but not to justify the prices charged for them. Coffee was again nothing special. We were more wowed by the... More

Not nearly as good as the Luang Prabang location. We ate croissants, eggs and lox with coffee and juice. Just an ok experience and won't repeat. Also observed multiple beggars walking by on this block so come prepared to donate or sAy no!

After a long train ride and border crossing from Thailand all we wanted is good coffee and breakfast. We found this place based on reviews and we're not disappointed. Croissants are amazing. Baguettes are exceptional. Coffee - can't be better. We enjoyed every bite. Would come back in a heart beat. Just found out there is a location in Luang... More

We had eaten at le Banneton in Luang Prabang and were excited to try the one in Vientiane as well. Surprisingly, the croissants were not quite as good at this location. Even early in the day at breakfast, they weren’t particularly fresh. The rest of our breakfast was fine and we particularly enjoyed the good coffee. Unlike the location in... More

This cafe saved my few mornings in Vientiane. The breakfast at my hotel was simply uneatable - so I strolled down the street and luckily stumbled into this magic little spot. Here I enjoyed croissants with melted cheese and ham and very good black coffee over the next two mornings.. Their lemonade was great too!

Excellent cafe/bakery with a very nice ambiance and selection of French breads, cakes and pastries. Very nice coffee. Very nice breakfasts. The place to be for brunch! Very popular so be prepared to wait for a table during busy times especially brunch on weekends.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. High quality simple food and amazing pastries make it one of my two favourite places for breakfast in Vientiane. I find myself missing my breakfasts here when I am overseas, is that not a good enough recommendation? Also, for those that like it, the best lemon juice I have had thus far in... More
